How the mighty have fallen

One of the most heartbreaking stories in sports is when an athlete at the peak of their career idiotically blows it all with one (or a few) bad decisions; suspensions, firings, and ultimately jail time end up as the final chapter of their sports legacies. There’s a few in every sport and it’s been happening for years.

Maybe it’s athletes’ neurological makeup/ competitive nature that leads athletes to blow their top or perhaps, just like in any other industry, you just have a couple bad apples once in a while.

When athletes wind up in the slammer they can slip from superstar to obscurity, seemingly overnight. That’s why we’ve put together the following gallery to check out some of the most notable pros-turned-prisioners that are currently locked up in the clink.
